# Applying Multiple Circle Theorems

Students learn about applying multiple circle theorems to solve complex problems. The relevant circle theorems are angle about a centre and circumference, angles in a cyclic quadrilateral and angles in the same segment. More able students combine the various theorems to derive a proof.

The start of the lesson is used ot recap the individual theorems so students can combine them later in the lesson. The plenary assesses progress through a typical exam style question.

##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to apply a single circle theorem.
• Most students should be able to apply multiple circle theorems to solve complex problems
• Some students should be able to prove the angle at the centre, cyclic quadrilaterals and angles in the same segment circle theorems.

#### Surface Area of Cylinders

When I teach how to find the surface area of cylinders I like to add a constant level of challenge and enjoyment to the lesson.  Rather than repetitively calculating the surface area of a cylinder I introduce more complex cylindrical shapes.

#### Teaching Mathematics for a Growth Mindset

Inspiring students to enjoy maths and feel the success that comes with attempting a difficult challenge is why I teach.  The feeling of success is addictive.  The more students experience it the more they want it and the further out of their comfort zone they are willing to go to get more of it.  Teaching […]

#### Equation of Straight Line Graphs

To find the equation of straight line graphs students need to calculate the gradient using two pairs of coordinates and the intercept which is the y value of where it crosses the vertical axis.  Examiner’s reports of past exam questions show students are more able to find the intercept of a straight line than they […]
